Did you know that in Franco's first year in the league with the 1982 Phillies, he played with Steve Carlton, Tug McGraw, Pete Rose and Sparky Lyle?

I'm sure that you could play 6 degrees of Julio Franco and trace him back to almost any player in MLB.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I did it with about 20 players from pre-20th century, no further than six degrees of separation.
